Wag 'n Trail to help homeless pets

Posted

Dogs, hiking and craft beer are all quintessentially Colorado, and the Dumb Friends League Wag 'n Trail event combines all three to help homeless pets at its Buddy Center location in Castle Rock.

The dog-friendly hike takes place from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 22 at Glendale Farm Open Space in Douglas County. In addition to a 1.6-mile hike, the event features a beer garden, silent auction, pet-related vendors, food trucks, music, adoptable dogs and access to a five-acre off-leash dog park.

“It's one of our favorite events of the year,” Dumb Friends League Buddy Center Director Matt Levien said in a news release. “It's fun seeing Coloradans come together to enjoy a beautiful hike with their pups while supporting the Buddy Center and the services we provide to the pets and people of Douglas County.”

Registration is $50 and includes a downloadable event photo of you and your dog, a photo frame, a bag of dog treats, craft beer or root beer, and ice cream for both you and your pup. Those who contribute an additional $25 will receive a Wag 'n Trail event T-shirt and dog bandana. Children ages 12 and younger can participate for free with paid adult registration, and receive ice cream and root beer.

Virtual hikers also can participate. Registration is $25 and includes a dog bandana. Virtual hikers dedicate a hike of their choice any time before Oct. 22. They also can enter the virtual hiker photo contest by submitting a picture from their hike for a chance to win a doggie gift basket and $100 gift card from PetSmart.

To register for Wag 'n Trail or as a virtual hiker, go to wagntrail.org.
